Testing White iPhone 4 Proximity Sensor and 'Death Grip'

On April 28, 2011

iPhoners.org explained why white iPhone 4 took a longer production time than black iPhone 4 and I think this white iPhone 4 models is worth it to buy.

Again, another video from iSpazio.net about white iPhone 4. Previously, they published unboxing video of white iPhone 4 which claimed to be the first white iPhone 4 unboxing video.

They updated with another video of white iPhone 4, it is a test of white iPhone 4 proximity sensor and ‘death grip’ issue on iPhone 4.

The white iPhone 4 exhibits excellent proximity sensor performance, responding immediately to turn off the device’s display when covered but then also keeping the display off until a finger or head is a “relatively large distance” away. The black iPhone 4s initially exhibited problems with displays coming back on while on phone calls, resulting in unintentional touch input. The issue was largely fixed in an iOS update, but it is reassuring to see that the white models exhibit solid performance from the get-go.

iSpazio also tested the “death grip”, attempting to generate signal loss by covering portions of the stainless steel band that serves as the antenna for the device. As with black iPhone 4s equipped with iOS versions released since Apple addressed early issues, the white iPhone 4 exhibits a slight drop in signal strength, but the drop does not appear to have a significant effect on connectivity.

So, iPhone 4 white version is not just another iPhone 4 with different color, but Apple also improved sensor, better antenna for iPhone 4, although no external design changes except the white color. Compared to black iPhone 4, white iPhone 4 is better.

Hey readers, if you already bought white iPhone 4, do you feel any difference of white iPhone 4?
